The Jaffa Cake Controversy

Part 1 - Unforgiveable

Beyond all rhyme and reason
Utterly beyond the pale
To be denounced in any season
A complete and utter FAIL

Eleven million watched in awe
Some driven to rage and shock
So many scarred by what they saw
But you can't turn back the clock

'Twas the graceless act of a savage
Of an ogre and a fool
Before he causes any more damage
Let's send him back to school

Or perhaps we ought to lock him up?
That might bring some relief
Keep him away from Jaffas and tea cups
Save us all from further grief

We need an apology from this pest
For the bitterness he's left in the mouth
I think our Mary said it best
"We don't do that in the South"


Part 2 - In Defence

He's no brute and he's no caveman
Just a guy who likes his tea
I think he's quite a brave man
With his dunking controversy

I'm with him - as there comes a time
To stand up for your right
To dip into your fine cuppa 
Whatever you reckon will delight

Now I myself go for bourbons
Or digestives, or hobnobs
I'd never thought of plunging Jaffas
As they're too soft for the job

But I'm reviewing that opinion
He's an expert, after all
He's really got me thinking 
So, I'm saying "Thank you, Paul"

McVitie’s say he's in the wrong
But I'd like to see their proof
And I know they're really smiling
As the sales go through the roof

Sun You Are a Real Star

Lying here in early evening light
the sun’s going down behind it’s cloud
it’s power being evident throughout day
effective rays showed before it bowed

Through the daytime hours so great
makes one melt under it’s shade
it’s so powerfully hot for one to bare
too much of it will make one to fade

Think how far away it is from earth
if too near it would burn us up
then all of our matter would just melt
no more to be only a shell shape cup

Thankfully it’s far enough away to harm
so we can enjoy it’s many a benefit
it spreads itself to different parts and times
full of it’s resources never ever to quit

Sun indeed you are one real star
makes a many bright smiling face
ice cream sales go through the roof
come back tomorrow to fill our space!

(some thoughts while enjoying sunshine on holiday in Italy.)
